We use them. We started out with Avent bottles but they were too fast flow for her. She was having lots of problems with gas and projectile vomiting from eating too fast/over-eating.

We switched to the Playtex VentAire and we haven't had a problem since.

I use the Medela bottles - if it gives milk Christopher will take it. He doesn't appear to have problems with any bottles unless they're empty and he's still hungry

I use Avent or the ones that come with my "mipump" and Avery doesn't care which I use. He, of course, would prefer boob.

We use them when she goes to the Nanny 3 days a week.

When we first started introducing them she would take any kind but we had the least amount of milk leaking out the side of her mouth with the Nuk bottles so that is what we stuck with.

We had trouble at first with her not taking a bottle but our Nanny is amazing and she Tatum to take a bottle very well with her. She fought it for like an hour the first time but has been doing great since.

We are using Dr.Browns. I love them, but Reece still is gassy and vomits daily.

I was using Medela's bottles, then I switched to Avent. His gas has lessened since we switched.

Do you use 'em? Yep
What type do you use? Mimijumi
Have you or your baby had any troubles? She stopped accepting the Playtex Vent-Aire when BFing was established well. I bought a couple of the Mimijumi ones for S&G. We tried them out and she is willing to take them, which means dad can still feed her, yay! I didn't notice a gas increase and she only seems to spit up if she's trying to fart or poop while full.

We use Playtex drop ins the most but also use the Nuk bottles and the Medela ones that came with my pump. I tried faster flow nipples because it takes Mia forever to eat but she's not ready for them yet-- it was a mess! No troubles with any I'm using...

He will only use Medelas... I've even tried to switch the nipples to other Platex bottles and he won't use anything but Medela bottles.

Tommee Tippee, although I think he would take just about any bottle I offered. I bought one of their bottles when we were supplementing and they are supposed to be very natural, like the breast, blah blah blah. He liked it, I like them, so we are going to go with it.
